Accessible washroom specialists at NYMAS have been seeing a sharp upturn in demand for their design-led, inclusive products as well as signs of a strong year for commercial partners, including those focussing on hospitality clients, who specialise in Doc M.
Why? The positive indications aren’t solely due to the light at the end of the tunnel for many due to the promise of some kind of post-COVID trading normality in the relatively near future.
Instead, three main factors are overlapping to create a promising 2021 – especially as the year progresses into Q2 and Q3 - for those at the commercial end of the accessible washroom sector.

Doc M in 2021: Three Reasons for Doc M Demand
1, End-user reassurance: NYMAS experts have been seeing a constant growth in sensor-operated products – including flush – in 2020 for obvious reasons. The opportunity? Increasingly savvy washroom end-users seeking a visibly smarter washroom designed not just with their accessibility needs in mind but also supporting their long-term preference for safer facilities.
NYMAS can offer advice on promoting washrooms with visibly, and actively, reassuring COVID-prevention features as well as Doc M compliance. Simply ask your NYMAS specialist.
2, A waiting market: With 3.2m people in the UK over 80 and 12m end-user disabled consumers with a spending power of £249bn/PA, the ever-increasing efforts by building and venue owners to access these groups of customers as they become more and more active in 2021 will see the return of projects paused in 2020 due to COVID disruption.
Preparing for even more building and renovation activity, with a demand for high-quality compliant washrooms, means following the trend already seen by NYMAS experts who have identified a rising number of major projects returning back into motion.
3, The compliance ‘open door’: Last year the NYMAS team, who were fully operational throughout 2020 and remain at full capacity, noted greater awareness of not just compliance but the best possible combination of design and accessibility at every level of the owner, architect, designer and trade professions.
A greater number of people than ever appreciate that ‘just’ being compliant isn’t enough. When this happens, NYMAS specialists are proud to support clients produce an end result designed to go the extra mile – in terms of design, usability and quality - for end-users.
